Patna: A doctor was thrashed by a group of nursing students for allegedly molesting a trainee in Bihar’s Katihar district. The incident came into light on Sunday after a video of the incident went viral on the social media.
The video showed the girl students, who were undergoing Auxiliary Nurse Midwives (ANMs) training, protesting against the doctor and then beating him up with slippers.
Reportedly, a trainee who was present in a training session told one of her colleagues that the doctor, an eye specialist, “tried to eve-tease” her.
Later, the doctor was summoned by the hospital’s civil surgeon. When the accused doctor was trying to put forward his version of the incident before the civil surgeon, the trainee ANMs sought immediate action against him.
Soon after, as many as 60 ANM trainees entered the room where the civil surgeon was speaking to their representative and started beating the accused doctor. However, the accused doctor managed to flee the spot.
